2012 Tyee Estate Barrel Select Pinot Noir

Rated 92 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Tyee 2012 Pinot Noir Estate Barrel Select comes from 30-year-old vines (and over). It has a vibrant bouquet with dark cherries mixed with bilberry and briary, the palate is medium-bodied with fine, lithe tannins and plenty of pure dark cherry, redcurrant and raspberry fruit that is very persistent. This is another sophisticated, very thoughtfully crafted wine from winemaker Merrilee Buchanan Benson."
